Catch up - 7.5 weeks to go!

So, it's been a while!

What to update you on?  Well, my lovely bridesmaid and my ma took me to Liverpool as a surprise Hen Weekend (more on that another time I PROMISE!)  I had the best time, it was just amazing.  As a self confessed Beatles fan girl it was just awesome.  Staying in the Beatles hotel and doing all the Beatles stuff.  And Liverpool is such a brilliant place.  Such characters we saw!!  But I promise I'll do a proper post on it soon with pictures and everything.

Dress is due back from seamstress in 2 weeks time, I delivered a little sparkly something to her a couple of weeks ago so hopefully that'll turn out okay along with the other tweaks.

I need to order a lace bolero but I've spotted one (on Amazon of all places!!) so will order that before the fitting (in theory!)

Andy finally bought a suit last week which is progress to say the least.  Mum told me earlier that she had bought a dress (FINALLY!!) from Vivien of Holloway no less!  Check my ma out!!

Did I do an update to say we'd bought the girls dresses?  We got them from a company based in Worthing called Courtesan Boutique.  One room of this utterly gorgeous house was given over to rails of gorgeous dresses.  We found one that looked lovely and which I'm sure will look ace in the purple chiffon.  Won't give too much away, but they're also due back in a few weeks.

Hair and make up trial had mixed results.  Make up was ace, just a bit more on the eyes and we're there.  Still not sure about lippy, I think it's just going to annoy me so need to think about that, or practice wearing it!  The base was so good it was still intact the next day (naughty, I don't take my make up off at night, I'll pay for that when I'm older I'm sure!)

Hair wasn't so ace I'm afraid to say.  It was okay, but like, it just wasn't me.  I know other brides would've loved it, very technically beautiful but it wasn't how I hoped I'd look.  So I've got a re-trial next Monday where I this I'll just go with the half-up-half-down beehive that I had originally planned for with a few fancy bits for good measure!

What else?  I'll do a post on our invites which went out about a month ago, with the evening invites going out last week.  Had lots of lovely RSVPs left (more on that another time too!) back and some ace song choices - checking the RSVP spreadsheet has really got me through at times.  Knowing that other people are looking forward to our wedding is a great comfort (!) and does make it all terribly exciting!

Cake has been ordered,  Flowers have been ordered.  Even a photobooth is now on the list!

And when I type it all out like this, it makes it all seem exciting and like I actually can't wait for it to be here.

I think I've resolved most of my body issues - i.e. I've resigned myself to being a bit of a heffer on my wedding day, but Andy loves me for who I am not what I look like.  He's attracted to me and surely I'll look ace on my wedding day regardless, as long as I remember to smile and enjoy it, who cares right!!

So that's it for now, will do some proper updates in the next couple of days (in theory!!)


  1. Eeek, not long to go! Everything sounds as though it's really coming together now. I'm sure these last few weeks will fly by :)
    Do we get photos when the big day happens?! xxx

  2. There will most definitely be photos when the big day happens (probably via Twitter, much to Andy's disappointment I'm sure but heck, this has been a real social networking wedding!!)

    Also considering submitting the photos to a wedding blog or two, depending on how I look on the day!!


I like comments, please leave me one to brighten my day!
